Holiday season is here!!

11-23-2009 04:11 AM by joebazooka | 2 comments »

Okay I am feeling alot better especially when a project you do comes out better than you expected. I have lots of stuff I am making so I go to work a 7am come home at 5 and then into my little apartment to work on another project. On the table I was outside with a flashlight cutting an sanding to get the job done. I guess I got the dedication, now I just need to find a little shop to rent. That is tomorrow’s worry, tonight I am just relaxing on the sofa. Thanks for all your support guys...

Starting work on the chair back

11-23-2009 12:17 AM by John | 1 comment »

Hello everyone. Been a long time since I’ve posted because it’s been a long time since I’ve done any woodworking. Discovered fly fishing this year. Well I got out into the shop and cleaned up a little and started work on the back of the chair. I marked out the joinery for the mortise and tenons and hogged out the mortise waste with a drill press then tried to square it up with a chisel. I’m rusty and messed up one of the mortises a little so that got me thinking about ...

And we shall call him stubby

11-22-2009 10:15 PM by Webb | 18 comments »

Hacked off the end of my thumb on the table saw last weekend. All things considered I got very lucky; but still had to have surgery to cut back the exposed bone and move some skin around. What is the most dangerous tool in the shop? My answer – whatever it is that you take your eye off, even, or especially, for a moment. After due consideration, looking at the fact that I do consider myself careful on the TS, the stats for accidents there and the fact that I have kids I will want to ...

Bookrack Project Part 2 (Final)

11-22-2009 09:11 PM by davidroberts | 1 comment »

In Part 1 from last night I introduced my son’ Eagle Scout project and got about half way through the building process. After cutting the shelves and backing to length, we started on the edge banding for the shelf fronts. I bought an “aspen” board from the borg and ripped it down a test piece to just over 3/8” strip. I thought the light colored aspen would contrast well with the oak plywood. I was wrong. Here is a pic of the test piece attached to the oak veneered...

The Scrapyard Desktop (Silent Projects #2)

11-22-2009 08:19 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

I didn’t believe this deserved a project posting…maybe later, if I get the chance to create some moldings on the edges and a finish on her. I also think it needs an endcap of some kind between the two supports. Anyways, the picture. I had fifteen minutes to myself a few nights ago, and this is what I came up with. Hope you take the idea and make it your own, for your furniture. It’s about 15”w x 13”L.

Game Table the legs

11-22-2009 05:49 PM by dryhter | 1 comment »

Hey Everybody, Well, here it is Christmas time, and if you are like me, you are contemplating a special Christmas gift. This year I decided to make a Game Table and this first video will deal with fabricating the table legs. The inspiration for the legs comes from Federal style furniture,the detail that caught my eye is an embellishment at the foot of the leg. I found it was not as easy to duplicate as I had thought and it, became necessary to improvise. A couple of jigs solved the d...

Rescued Wood #2: A New Fallen Tree for Harvesting

11-22-2009 09:41 AM by PG_Zac | 8 comments »

My nephew told me yesterday afternoon, that a tree had been blown over during the very high winds we had 2 days ago, and he thought it was a Yellowwood tree. Needless to say, I jumped into the car and sped off to confirm his suspicion. Unfortunately he was wrong, it was a Wild Plum tree (Harpephyllum Caffrum). It fell over outside our local court about 80 metres from where a Wild Plum had fallen over about 2 years ago. Fortunately for me, when that previous one fell, the council’s ch...

Rescued Wood #1: Slabbing Small Logs Yesterday

11-22-2009 09:34 AM by PG_Zac | 1 comment »

Yesterday we had bad weather, so I had a gap to do some work in the shop instead of being outside helping my wife erect the new pasture fence. A job that has taken a back seat for a while was to slice up some salvaged wood for final drying and also for sending samples to a couple of guys who have requested it. Please note that the colours in these photos are very muted, and are much richer in real life. Firstly, Spalted Avocado .Yellowwood .Natal Mahogany .Very Fresh Wild Pl...
